  2. [INFP] What do you want to do with your life?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I've been thinking about this a lot latly... not in terms of what has the world to offer me, but what do I have to offer the world in return? It is actually harder to answer than I thought. I have been doing nothing for so long and some times it feels like I'm not really alive. I want to take...
  3. [INFJ] Reason to live

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Relationships and emotional connections are really the only reasons why I keep on living, tbh. Even my ambitions, too, are based around other people.

  5. [ENTJ] ENTJ - Yearning for something greater

    ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    Yearning for something greater is a curse that many of us are intimately familiar with. A storm rages within us all and threatens to destroy us from within if it is not either satiated or tamed. A mirror into the heart of those who thirst for thunder and great deeds. Those that crave adventure...

    Blog
    "What exists?" asked the mouse. The cat yawned, stretched in its cat-formed cat-bed and looked at the mouse. "What do you mean, what exists?" the cat replied. "I'm not sure. Sometimes I'm not completely convinced that this is all there is to being. Look for cheese. Find cheese. Tediously extract...
  9. I was recently asked what principals, values, morals, and ethics meant to me.

    Blog
    I was recently asked what the difference between Principles, Ethics, Morals, and Values meant to me. I have to be honest, it took me a few minutes to think about them separately, while all together... don't think I've done that before. Here's what I came up with, very happy with it. What I...
